The question is, will the brisket still be okay to put back on tonight, or in the morning, when I get back? Or, is it a goner?
Any help would be appreciated.
Al's correct. No issues as you describe the situation. There would be more concern if it was injected but even then a brisket heats and cools realatively quickly. Hope all is well with your family member and enjoy the brisket...JJ
